For those who can't watch it, it's essentially a system for you to join a specific faction in a conflict between cities in the Royal Continent. It's a PvP system, enabling you open-world PvP anywhere, if the enemy is in a different faction you can attack them basically anywhere. It's entirely optional, you can leave a faction any time too.

There's also some PvE elements to it, enabling you to earn faction points while gathering/fishing and fighting AI enemies and capturing outposts. You can use faction points in a special faction store to get special items, like cute baby animals to raise as mounts.
